The Flashpot Moments are an indie rock band with a stadium-sized sound, drawing from influences like REM, Green Day, and Tom Petty. Their music has been featured on 100+ TV shows and played on 60+ independent radio stations. Made up of members from Boston, Minneapolis, and the Jersey Shore, their diverse backgrounds come together to create a unique and energetic sound that is both familiar and fresh. With catchy hooks and soaring choruses, The Flashpot Moments create every song as if it’s meant for a massive crowd, and their live shows are not to be missed.
The Flashpot Moments – Sauce
The 2023 EP by the band is the successor to The Flashpot Moments’ last full-length studio effort titled “Very Far”. The record clocks at 17 minutes with 5 tracks led by the upbeat and groovy One Too Many Great Ideas. Each of the songs in the album seeks to tell a comprehensive story which is a testament to the band’s narrative skills. Songwriting has always been one of the finest arts, and these musicians prove that they are proficient enough at this craft with face-melting riffs and equally distressing lyrical prowess. What is most impressive though is The Flashpot Moments’ dedication to staying true to the post-punk sound that fans have come to love them for. Turning it up a notch with Pile On, and making their listeners nod along with the succeeding Young Send Me Tunes the band has carefully crafted an impressive work of art. Sauce by The Flashpot Moments is a must-listen for every fan of post-punk music who loves to explore newer territories.
Lucky Human Illusion
Also released in 2023, in quick succession after their critically acclaimed “Sauce,” the band released their second EP of the year titled “Lucky Human Illusion,” which proved to be another fan favourite. Starting off the album with their collaborative effort with Kay Hanley, “Baby You Don’t Know” is a powerhouse of song which is reminiscent of the band’s influences like R.E.M and Green Day. The album ranges from Punk to Hard Rock, even venturing into the realms of alternative music. With an impeccable mix and equally impressive songwriting, The Flashpot Moments’ Lucky Human Illusion is a complete package.
The albums has a runtime of 21 minutes and has 6 amazing tracks. Our personal favourite is “Code” which also closes the record. Both albums are filled with energy and is perfectly suitable for being incorporated into movies or TV shows that explore themes of adventure. Action movies like Transformers or Ready Player One would also benefit greatly from the addition of their music. The post-punk enthusiasts have already made a name for themselves in Boston Minneapolis and Jersey Shore. Presently, Flashpot is getting started to be recognized globally as one of the most promising indie acts to carry the flag for Punk music in contemporary times.
